We believe that innovations in biology should be
accessible, affordable, and open to everyone.


We’re building a community biology lab for
amateurs, inventors, entrepreneurs,
and anyone who wants to
experiment with friends.

Welcome to BioCurious

BioCurious Community Lab

Opened in Sunnyvale, CA; Fall 2011! and in 2017 we moved to Santa Clara. 

Join the discussion at Google Groups

http://groups.google.com/group/biocurious

Our successful Kickstarter campaign (http://biocurious.org/kickstarter) brought together volunteers and other biology enthusiasts eager to create a community lab, and they helped us raise over $35,000.

We are a 4100 sq. ft. facility in the heart of Silicon Valley. Come join us and see the next big thing to start in a Silicon Valley garage.

BioCurious is…

a complete working laboratory and technical library
for entrepreneurs to cheaply access
equipment, materials, and co-working space
a training center for biotechniques, with an emphasis on safety
a meeting place for citizen scientists, hobbyists,
activists, and students

=====

Science is all around us. Many find a love for it at an early age, but few continue to learn after leaving educational institutions. For those who continue to seek to know, there is BioCurious. Curious about biology? Come to a meetup to find other like-minded folk!

BioCurious is a completely volunteer run non-profit organization. We serve the community by providing lab space and classes to members and the community.


There are plenty of ways to get involved:

become a member

teach a class

take a class

donate your time, money

change the world
